As humanists, we believe in the rights and liberty of all persons over their own bodies. To force women to bear a fetus to term against their wishes is a fundamental violation of their bodily autonomy.

We, the Board of the International Humanist and Ethical Union, call on the people of Ireland to vote to repeal the 8th amendment, which at present prevents women from making decisions about their own bodies, futures, and families.
